    Civilians VS Soldiers

    Your alarm goes off, you hit the snooze and sleep for another 10 minutes.
    He stays up for days on end

    You take a warm shower to help you wake up.
    He goes days or weeks without running water.

    You complain of a "headache", and call in sick.
    He gets shot at as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.

    You put on your anti war/don't support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.
    He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.

    You make sure you're cell phone is in your pocket.
    He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.

    You talk trash about your "buddies" that aren't with you.
    He knows he may not see some of his buddies again.

    You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls.
    He walks the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists

    You complain about how hot it is.
    He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.

    You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.
    He doesn't get to eat today.

    Your maid makes your bed and washes your clothes.
    He wears the same things for weeks, but makes sure his weapons are clean

    You go to the mall and get your hair redone.
    He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.

    You're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.
    He's told he will be held over an extra 2 months.

    You call your girlfriend and set a date for tonight.
    He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.

    You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday.
    He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.

    You roll your eyes as a baby cries.
    He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet

    You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything.
    He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and remembers why he is fighting.

    You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.
    He hears the gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded.

    You see only what the media wants you to see.
    He sees the broken bodies lying around him.

    You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.
    He does exactly what he is told.

    You stay at home and watch TV.
    He takes whatever time he is given to call, write home, sleep, and eat.

    You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.
    He crawls under a tank for shade and a 5 minute nap, only to be woken by gunfire.

    You sit there and judge him, saying the world is probably a worse place because of men like him.
    If only there were more men like him!
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    I have a MAID!? Where has that lazy sack been for the last 25 years of my life?
